Title:
The Wade boys on the River (1)
Date:
06/27/1931
Description:
Three boys relax on the banks of the Millstone River on a bright, sunny June day. The boys are Elton's nephews, George H., Alan T. and, his namesake, Elton Leslie Wade. The poses in this picture are different from those in 2009.1.1612, 2009.1.1613 and 2009.1.2417. George is fishing while Alan naps under his hat and Leslie stares at the canal.

This photo is a companion piece to Elton H.L. Wade's most notable photograph. It also showed the boys at the canal and was submitted in an international contest sponsored by Eastman Kodak. Elton won the first prize of $100. That photograph was featured in a full-page ad on the back cover of the Saturday Evening Post on July 2, 1932.
